    • Whoa! Good eye. The option volume is Huge, compared to normal. Especially on the Feb 5 calls and the Mar 5 calls. Today alone the volume was 5X-6X the entire volume for each month. There is only a couple of weeks left in February, so that means the investor expects news pretty soon before his Feb call options expire. Granted it's not a huge amount of money (Feb 4 & 5 calls = approx $5K, Mar 4 & 5 calls = approx $20K), if nothing happens though the options will expire worthless and the investor will lose all of his money. So that's a pretty big risk. With the stock, you can hold forever in hopes that the price appreciates. But with options you're risking losing your entire investment. So to answer your question, 'does it say something to us longs', my answer would be yes. It says someone is betting big that the stock goes a lot higher very soon, this month or next month to be exact.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
